Transfer Gel is a transparent fibrous gel medium that transfers a design/image printed from a laser jet or professional printed material onto a surface. It can also be used to decoupage.
Transfer Gel can be used over paint on furniture, wood, walls, and any previously painted surface.
Brush Transfer Gel liberally on printed material. Apply paper with print face down (make sure print is mirror imaged). Use a smoothing tool to adhere paper evenly to surface. Allow paper to dry to assure the image has transferred. Best to let image transfer completely overnight but drying time can be sped up with use of a hairdryer. Spritz paper with water, then use your hand or sponge to roll away top layer of image first. Removal of excess paper can be done by hand or with a sponge. A two sided kitchen sponge works great as you can use rough side to remove excess paper around image. Your image actually sits on the Transfer Gel so do not remove the gel as you will remove the image. Do not over work the removal of your image. Test small spot to assure drying is complete. Keep in mind Transfer Gel is not intended to give you a perfect “copied” look, so if you accidentally remove some of the image go with it and distress the sides a little.
Tip: To get less of a “halo” once paper is removed cover entire surface with paper so no edges are evident (although edges create an aged look once dark waxed or color washed over). If you want to remove “halo”, lightly sand the edges with a fine grit sandpaper. (halo tends to appear less on lighter paint). Apply Artisan Enhancements® Clear Topcoat to seal.
Seal container tightly and do not let freeze or expose to direct sunlight or extreme heat. Do
not apply product when air and surface temperatures are below (50°F) 10°C.
